Medford, Oregon Votes To Ban All Residential Marijuana Grows

Medford Oregon’s City Council, a few weeks after approving medical marijuana dispensaries in the city, voted to ban all growing of cannabis in residential zones in town. Mayor Gary Wheeler had threatened to veto the controversial dispensary ordinance even though it had passed with a overwhelming 7-1 vote. A compromise was reached that creates a complete ban on growing in residential zones, medical marijuana included. The ban passed the first reading with a vote of 6-2, with Council members Clay Bearnson and Kevin Stein voting in opposition.

Medford and the local police have a long history of resisting marijuana access, going back to the Memorial Week 2013 raid of Southern Oregon NORML, Puffin’ Stuff, and the Green Compass. Later, the city fought in court to deny business licenses to state authorized medical marijuana dispensaries after the legislature voted them in. Coincidentally, with legal dispensaries in Medford looming on he horizon, Chief of Police Tim George recently announced he would retire in December.

Councilman Tim Jackle, who voiced the strongest opposition to the original measure allowing medical dispensaries, encouraged others on the Council, and the Mayor, to consider a ban on residential growing. The final reasoning was that the residents who wanted marijuana would now have legal access points to purchase their medicine.

Illinois medical marijuana sales top $210K in first week

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, November, 14th 2015 by THCFinder

Illinois medical marijuana dispensaries sold nearly $211,000 worth of medical cannabis to patients in the first week of legal sales, as reported by the Associated Press.

Those figures are pretty high, considering only eight dispensaries are currently operating in the state and less than a quarter of eligible patients have made medical marijuana purchases so far.

 

According to Illinois’ medical marijuana program director Joseph Wright, dispensaries served 806 patients in the first week of sales. Customers purchased approximately 406 ounces of medical cannabis at a price of roughly $450 per ounce.

Petition To Fire DEA Head Chuck Rosenberg Surpasses 75,000 Signatures

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 14th 2015 by THCFinder

chuck rosenberg deaDEA head Chuck Rosenberg recently made some insensitive, unscientific comments about medical marijuana that demonstrated just how little compassion he has for suffering patients in this country. Below are Chuck Rosenberg’s comments, via the Huffington Post:

“What really bothers me is the notion that marijuana is also medicinal — because it’s not,” Rosenberg told reporters last week. “We can have an intellectually honest debate about whether we should legalize something that is bad and dangerous, but don’t call it medicine — that is a joke.

“There are pieces of marijuana — extracts or constituents or component parts — that have great promise,” he continued. “But if you talk about smoking the leaf of marijuana, which is what people are talking about when they talk about medicinal marijuana, it has never been shown to be safe or effective as medicine.”

In reaction to those comments, the Marijuana Majority created a petition calling for the termination of Chuck Rosenberg. Below is the language of the petition (which can be signed at this link here):
